What do you feel was the most ground shaking story of 2008?

I know I have a question about your "favorite" story. However, what story did you think had a huge affect on society?

  • Obama being elected, as it will always be a "blurb" in history. I don't feel the economy is a ground shaking one - I saw that coming when I started working in real estate a few years ago. Many people saw this economy coming, and I really don't think people should be surprised. As horrible as the Caylee Anthony story is, it's hardly a "new" thing. Unfortunately, numerous parents have killed their children, and as always it will eventually fade into nothingness.

  • well in my personal opinion, Barrack Obama becoming president was one and Caylee Anthony was too. These our stories of the decade.

  • The first black American President. having lived through the Detroit roits in 1967 this is a major milestone in my book.

  • Obama would probably be #1 ... but I would have to say the bailout.

    As for my local stories, it would have to be that the Detroit mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, had to step down from office or get impeached for lying under oath and other scandels. Gotta love it!
